Dateless Teen Wins The Internet With Custom Half-Dress, Half-Suit Ensemble For Prom

Prom season is here and that means you're likely going to see a bunch of teens showing off their fabulous gowns and slick tuxedos.

Well, one teen decided that instead of wearing the usual suit and tie combo, he would make something a little different. He designed his own custom outfit that made light of his single status.

This is one DIY prom creation you have to see.

Wyatt Cheatle didn't have a date for his prom, so he and his mom decided to do something a little different.

After one of Wyatt' siblings joked that he should wear a dress, he got the idea to do just that.

Wyatt and his mom raided the local thrift store and gathered all their supplies for less than $25.

They selected a lavender men's dress shirt, a fuschia pussy bow shirt, a black skirt and dress pants. Then, they got to work.

They really did think of everything, huh?

You may have noticed that Wyatt's shoes don't quite match, but that's because they were pressed for time and couldn't get the right pair. Still, sneakers are way more comfortable anyways.

On Reddit, where Wyatt's mom shared the photos, many people applauded Wyatt's creativity and sense of humor.
